would attack from the left. you say wait a minute. mitt romney is not a progressive, you're right. who cares. >> i'd repeal dodd frank. we're not going to get rid of all regulation. you have to have regulation. >> cenk: unfortunately, it worked. we'll tell you the results and we'll tell you how it worked on the show. then did president obama take it easy on romney because fox news has been charging him with being an angry black man because of this old clip. >> what is happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your money? it tells me that some how people in new orleans, they don't care about it as much. >> cenk: that is a really interesting debate. we'll have that on the show. and then toby zeigler from the "west wing"." >> it's not rocket science, it's labeled, but it takes a voter extra ten seconds to find it. >> cenk: how he would have done last night. all that and the elbow of the day. well somebody elbowed themselves. you might have been able to guess it. that's all on "the young turks." guess what time is it? you know it. you guessed that too. it's go time. >>
that the president is leading by right now. that is what mitt romney needs to accomplish tonight with the people watching. those that are already going to vote for mitt romney and those especially in the african-american community with approximately 90% lead by the president are going to vote for the president. i think it will be political suicide. i think it would be disaster. it doesn't help likability. >> bill: i'm a lonely guy tonight. everybody disagree. rove says oh, no, no, no. i would do it. i would do it if i were romney. i wouldn't bring it up say, you know, like right out of the box. but as soon as the president is -- you are a person who doesn't really want to represent all america, guy are you kidding me? i go are you kidding me? you are saying that to me? and bang, bang, bang. and i would do it. do you expect, kirsten, passion like i bring or are we going to have pinheaded stuff like pbs does? what are we going to have? we're not going to have passion as you call it, whatever it is that you have. >> none of that. >> look, it's supposed to be all on the economy so i think it's proba
of error. >> right. >> bill: i'm standing alone tonight. everybody is saying mitt romney cannot bring it to the president with emotion and passion. you agree? >> i do not believe that he should raise the tape. i think that he should find a way to mention the tape in the context of something somebody else does. the 47% would be a good entry. >> bill: when i said he should use that as a shield. >> i agree with that the big reason you mention the tape is to force the mainstream media to play it. to my knowledge, this is not. >> bill: they are doing what they always do. >> this has not been played on the nightly news of the three stations that i know of. >> they haven't covered the campaign really at the nightly news level. >> if he alludes to it they have to cover it and so do the news media because he has alluded to it in the debate and the viewers will want it. there are three large things he has to do tonight. number one, he is falling behind in a number of the swing states because of the range of personal attacks obama made on him. largely on his business career. and he should have b
romney can give all of these voters an excuse to vote for him, right? >> yeah, we talked about this yesterday on the show. if he can go in -- that's why i worry about all this talk about zingers, just stylistically. don't be someone you're not. don't come in with canned jokes. be who you are, which is the line he delivered, i thought, well in his convention speech where he said, i can't heal the earth. i'm not going to part the seas, whatever he said. i just want to help you and your family. i'm not fancy, i'm not exciting. i want this job because i can do a better job healing the economy, not the earth, healing the economy than he has done for the last 3 1/2 years. if he can do that, be confident, don't try to be slick or funny, it's not who you are, just be mitt romney, he'll have a good night. >> i think he'll have a good night. i'll tell you this also, mark mckinnon. we're going to hear about the 47% from barack obama tonight. he'll bring that up. i also think mitt romney will bring this up in the debate. something that was spoken yesterday in charlotte, north carolina, by
mitt romney is looking at right now. the gap over the past two weeks is clear and consistent. >> as this evolves, this will be updated tomorrow and you'll see whether or not the debate had the impact that romney is hoping it might have. >> it's rare that something like that is instant. you'll see it over the next couple of days. you'll see it show up and you'll see it show up here. you'll see these lines converge. if obama wins big, you'll see it start to diverge. >> obviously we'll be chatting with you all night long as you fact check this debate. you can check it out live on wusa9.com. not only are we streaming it live, you can look at the fact check as it happens and you can understand when one candidate or the other is trying to pull a fast one. toss it back to you in the studio. >> multiplatform at its best. derek, thanks. we'll see you later. >>> an update on a story we told you about yesterday. this woman wanted by police for trying to ride a manatee. a witness snapped this picture. anica turned herself into police last night. she didn't know manatee riding, joyrid

'm not talking about that. i'm talking about right now. governor romney put him on his record, and that was his signature achievement. >> i promise you, what they will do, they're going to fire ever nuclear bomb they have. lou: had dirty. is that what you're saying? >> at the end of the day, the fact that the man stood on that stage and look presidential, performed at a high level, kept telling people is the economy. at a solution to fix it. what did they could agree with all the details are not is irrelevant. he came off as presidential. that is the test. 55 million people the watch that are open-minded, a basically benefited immensely 56 were talking about over 60 million people watching that debate. your tuchman 67 percent thought he won according to the cnn poll which is not exactly a ride -- >> that is the consensus. a lot of it was driven by the kind of twitter celebrity. and leftwingers for the most part who were saying they wanted obama to go at bain, the 47% issue, get dirty. as their advice to him. i will say this to you on the economy. consumer confidence right now is moving upward.
romney's campaign. >> right. let's be clear the kinds of people that paul ryan was talking about include seniors, people who are drawing social security. >> those takers. they just take. >> taking more from the freg than they are -- federal government than they are paying in. they happen to be the numbers that vote in large numbers. if you're a republican and deficits with minorities and women, you need those white seniors to show up in large numbers for you. maybe they won't really understand that they fit into this category. there is a fair number of people who think this other people who are drawing on government subsidy in one way or another. but that vision part of this debate is going to be interesting because mitt romney has set himself up for some pretty difficult territory. are people on social security the kinds of voters that you are talking about, mr. romney, in this debate tonight, when you say government is paying too big a role in people's lives. that's a tricky one for him to walk out of. >> are the elderly moochers? he's going to have to answer that question. >> service
it better will be the theme. you can hear governor romney said at right end of the gate. guarantee it. stuart: will be watching you tonight. you're a professional politician . i should say that vice-president biden tried to walk back that, the little bit later in the day. he said the middle-class had been buried by policies supported by romney in ryan. can he walk it back successfully? was a just an awful gas? >> at think it's pretty bad. the language is clear and unambiguous. governor romney can and i dare say should say and tell biden acknowledged that the middle-class was. because of your policies. was to you to that? stuart: it's an opening. >> a real opening. stuart: our next door. in numbers and government dependency. 36 percent are on at least one major welfare program. now another, only less than 1% of applications that come into the country or rejected on the grounds of the applicant might becoming dependent on the government. that is 7,000 out of 10 million rejected because they might become dependent. 36 percent have some dependency on the gunman. to the extraordinary numbe
the democrats are not panicking. the lead in the swing states is still strong. romney in the polls right now is getting back up to 46, 47% which is where he was going to be anyway. >> that was before last night. >> ben, ben, please, come on man, you got plenty of time. so i think where romney excelled was in his personal performance, what he didn't excel on is selling his policies and the arguments about how he's going to make the country better. he's going to have to do a better job at that in the future debates. i think you'll see obama in the debate and in television ads dissepl -bl the lies and mistakes that romney made last night in his presentation, which is going to take him down a little bit on the policy side. i think, look, democrats aren't panicking. we didn't have a good night. we will still win this election. obama has to raise this game and fight much harder if he wants to death this thing done. megyn: in al gore's defense i did feel a little funny when i was in denver too. i want to show you a couple of polls before i let you go from cnn. 67% say romney won, 25% obama. 75 of i
mitt romney? >> i think so and i hope so. today one of 7.8% figure came out, they were right on it. he basically said, look, when i am president and we talk about economic growth, it's going to mean something. because the number of the unemployed is going to come down because we're going to have more jobs and it's not going to be based on the number of people leaving the workforce. that was a very powerful statement. i have not heard him pick apart the numbers before like you did. it was very clear. we will be growing the economy and not having this number go down because people have given up hope or if that was a different line from mitt romney and i think it's a smart one. a lot of people think well, okay, things are great but they're getting better. the point is we can do a lot better than this. megyn: laura, we thank you. just ahead, a top obama staffer goes after mitt romney for remarks he made in 2007. we will have a fair and balanced debate coming up about that next. [ male announcer ] eligible for medicare? that's a good thing, but it doesn't cover everything. only about 80% of
. >> i think that's right, and i think the rasmussen poll and the new donations for the romney campaign every two seconds -- all of this adds up to a sizable momentum shift in the collection. megyn, i think beginning last week in california, you can vote -- register to vote online. they are really pushing that. democrats really like online voter registration. because i think they believed it would help them. in some states, where people are beginning to look at the situation for the first time, on wednesday night may be somebody who looks like the winner or that he has solutions to america's problems. and a very gracious and often times very good-natured way, he made the affirmative case for why we shouldn't settle for lowered expectations in the united states. i think that was very comforting for people. i think that mitt romney who had been framed by the obama team has an out of touch, rich, white guys who might be nice but he just doesn't get you -- suddenly he became very likable because he looked like a winner. and we want to be with winners. winners tend to be more likable even if
right because romney is selling t-shirts praising joe biden's honesty. >> i think we are starting this deof --starting this debate wita little honesty. we are seeing a huge amount of debt piles on it was four years ago this president dazzled us in debate saying he understood the problems this country faced. he knew the magnitude of the issues the country had to get through. but he had the right solution. here we are four years later and he still hasn't accomplished any of what he set out to do. that will be the biggest hurdle he has to overcome tonight looking back saying why didn't he accomplish anything he did with a democratic congress for the first two years of his administration. megyn: the point the vice president was trying to make was that he was saying the non-partisan tax policy center argued romney's tax plan will push a higher tax burdennen onto the middle class. >> it as liberal think tank that would take any numbers we put out and say it was bad. the fact of the matter is an independent study said it would lower middle class tax burden and governor romney's plans tal
't know. that's straight from romney's communications director. >> right. you have to wonder, will this be an issue in tonight's debate. the jeremiah wright was a racially tinged scandal, led the president to give the speech in philadelphia, widely hailed, race is a comb mrx issue in the country always has been. we have yet to perfect and come to terms with yet. here we are again. we'll see if this has -- an impact. whose base it may rile up or not rile up. >> yeah, a lot of people are questioning whether or not it is news. this was a covered speech. but according to some even within the abc family, they said at the time, the campaign only put out prepared remarks in a prepared newspaper, posted a nine-minute edited version. abc and networks, was based on prepared remarks, not really what was said at the podium. definitely aster that i'm sure many outlets will be following. >> going to get some attention for sure. a lot going on in politics. that brings us to our facebook question of the day today. >> yep. we want to know what are you hoping to hear from the candidates in to
years. your response to that, romney campaign jumped op it right away. i think the middle class families have been buried for many, many years. working harder and making less. they have been buried by a led to thead economic economic calamity we inherited four years ago. we have been trying to dig out from being buried in the avalanche. this is whether we create more jobs or to what romney wants to do to go back to policies that got us in that mess? >> bret: is the president going on the offensive? on the >> i don't know that the president -- i don't think the president looks at this like a boxing or sparring match. again, his audience is the american people. having that conversation with him, talking to them about how we create jobs, how we double our manufacturing, how we double experts. his focus is on american people not his opponent. >> i want to talk to you about libya. you were on "fox news sunday" with chris wallace. you said this. >> well, i think, as you heard ambassador rice say, the best information we had at the point in which he gave that answer is the answer she gave. look

romney, debate and what debate? oh, right. wednesday. the first presidential debate. we got a rigorous macro economic lesson that day. but by the end of the week, the only number that mattered was 7.8. that's because the unemployment rate released yesterday is the lowest since 2009. the bureau of labor statistics announced fresh revisions for the summer jobs numbers. in fact, july and august saw a combined increase of 86,000 more jobs than were originally reported. and the household survey showed is an exceptionally strong month with 873,000 more employed americans last month than in july. president obama was back on the trail yesterday trying to temper his enthusiasm. >> today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> mr. romney, of course, saw it a little differently. >> the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> good try but actually this month, the rate fell because ame
st. "starting point" begins right now. >>> good morning, welcome everybody. our starting point this morning, crunch time in the race for the white house. just two days remain before president obama and mitt romney square off in denver for the first of three critical debates. president's being prepped in nevada today. and the gop challenger has some ground to make up because a brand-new "washington post"/abc news poll this morning has the president leading by two percentage points among likely voters. it's not unusual for candidates to try to lower expectations in the days leading up to dedebate. republicans have been playing up the president's eloquence, ever since last week. but it seems somebody forgot to tell new jersey governor chris christie, because he was setting the bar high for mr. romney. listen. >> he's going to come in wednesday night, lay out his vision for america, he's going to contrast what his view is with what the president's record is, the president's view for the future and this whole race is going to be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> upside do
. >> sean: all right. congressman, we will let you go. governor romney stays with us. >> we have 12,000 people here, excited to see us. >> sean: 12,000 people -- we have only 4 mill 81 people here who want to see you. so we are competing. thank you very much for your time. let's go to a montage of governor romney, in of his best moments from last night. >> i don't have a $5 trillion tax cut -- i don't have a tax cut -- of the scale that you are talking about. my view is that we ought to provide tax relief to people in class. but i am not going to reduce the share of taxes paid by high-income people. high-income people are doing just fine in this country. they will do fine whether i am president or you are. middle-income americans have been buried. they are just being crushed. i will not reduce the share paid by high-income individuals. i know that and your runningmate keep saying that and it's a popular thing to say. but it's just not the case. i have five boys. i am used to people saying something that's not always true and keep repeating it and hoping that i will believe it. but t
>> paul: that is it for this edition. thanks to my panel. i'm paul gigot. we hope to see you right here next week. >>> on fox news watch. a week of anticipation as the news media got set for the big debates. >> governor romney doesn't have to want charm offensive but he has to prove he can related to average american voters. >> but a big win for romney and big shocker for the mainstream press. >> where was the president? where was the fight? >> liberal media trying to spin the outcome and did he have their man. >> did you really mean to call barack obama lazy. to call him lazy.... >> new details about the murders in libya. but that was missed by most in the news business. a video clip from the president's past gets new attention for what was said. how did the media react and is it fair game? spanish channel univision gets high marks for covering fast and furious scandal. and weather channel heats up controversy about winter storms. >> jon: on the panel this week, writer fox news contributor, judyiller. also richard grenell. jing pinkerton and talk radio news bureau chief ellen ratn
romney on your left, president obama on your right. the first question tonight, john, goes to barack obama. >> well, will they have a chance to mix it up and rebutt each other in a free-flowing way. >> organizers hope to have a flee-flowing discussion. this is the kind discussion we like to see because it allows the two candidates to discuss it amongst themselves. if there are questions about each other's plans, they can directly ask each other that. we have not seen that in this campaign and we'll see it tonight. >> you said the economy will likely be the big subject in the debate tonight. we have new polling to give a sense of what voters are saying about this right now. >> it is, john. no surprise, people are very downtrodden about the economy. let's look at the new cnn poll just released coming on the air. it shows that 73% of americans believe that there is poor economic conditions right now. only 27% believe it is good. john, you have to ask yourself, who is that 27% who thinks that the economy right now is doing well. >> and we have been talking about this all week, who do vot
and mitt romney trying to convince the country he is the better man for the job. now, right now it looks like voters need convincing on both sides because in a brand new cnn poll of polls it shows a very close race. the president maintaining a razor-thin three-point lead with a month to go at this point. our cnn political director mark preston is live from denver right in the middle of it all. mark, you have new details on what to expect tonight. >> well, john, yes. there's no arguing, this is the most important moment of this presidential debate. in just a few hours as you said, mitt romney, barack obama squaring off here in denver. it will be a 90-minute debate. it will cover six different segments. most of it, though, john, is going to be on the economy. there's going to be three segments to focus on the economy. one segment on foreign policy. one segment on the role of governing and one segment on the role of government in people's lives, john. so how this is going to be set up is that the candidates will be sitting at podiums. if you're looking at your tv screen, mitt romney on your
by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >>> and that exchange right there may be a pretty good preview of what we are going to hear tonight from the presidential candidates this is a debate that will focus entirely on domestic issues. that means a lot of talk about the economy and taxes. back to you guys. >>> thank you, doug. tonight's debate a big talker this morning. we are hearing from the man who helped prepare romney for his primary debate brett o'donnell. o'donnell also preparing john mccain for his debate against president obama. he tells bill o'reilly what mitt romney will need to do in order to come out on top tonight. listen to this. >> the burden in the debate is on the governor, or am i wrong? >> i think you are absolutely right. while the challenger gets elevated by being on the stage with the president clearly the president is on the mountain top. he won the last set of debates. there has to be a compelling reason for change. governor romney has the burden of proof. >> you prepped john mccain for his debate with barack obama. mccain held his own b
romney is going to put y'all back in chains. >> brian: right. >> martha: southern accent that day, too. >> steve: he did. >> brian: the other thing is the president had to get prepared for the debate. paul ryan and joe biden had to carry their weight. it didn't really work too well. >> steve: you know how mitt romney prepared yesterday out in denver for the debate. he had the burrito bowl at chipotle. >> brian: right. >> steve: he said he usually goes with a burrito, but yesterday. >> martha: burrito bowl. let's get a look at some headlines this morning. there are concerns today that the obama administration may be looking to move some of the gitmo detainees to american soil. the federal government plans to buy the thompson correctional center in illinois. at one point this prison was considered for housing gitmo detainees and there was a huge controversy based around that. many lawmakers outraged saying it would open the door for ultimately carrying out a gitmo transfer. house speaker john boehner said this, the unilateral decision to purchase the thompson prison, even though congress
shed that elite, sort of image. romney is the extreme version of john kerry, right? >> jamal: right. was there ever a chance, though that we could go for five more weeks without something shaking up this race? it seems to me mitt romney was going to do something, some external factor was going to happen, there was no way we were going to go five weeks on the trajectory that we were on. >> yes, and we have the jobs numbers coming out, and the jobs numbers that will come out in the first week of november. and the media likes to write the horse race stories, and justify their ability to spend the rest of these five weeks on the campaign trail. so somebody was going to write the romney is having a comeback story, and romney just gave them a reason to do so. >> jamal: okay. reid wilson thank you. check out "the hot line." thank you for being here. i am jamal simmons, and this is the "bill press show." >> announcer: radio meets television, the "bill press show." now on current tv. ♪ >>i jump out of my skin at people when i'm upset. they're doing this this corruption base
